right now. so russia, the russian officials, sergey lavrov can give assurances that they will not invade, not do a military intervention but in fact what we see happening in reality is a smaller pinprick kind of thing distributed. those troops in the airport, troops surrounding a pro-russian television station. that appears what is playing out right now. it doesn't have to be a georgia-style invasion to be a serious military intervention and i see officials in kiev saying that this intervention will have, in their words, serious consequences. >> and jim acosta at the white house, we're expecting president obama to come out any moment and address this. this is a delicate dance for the white house. the president needing to assert his feelings but also not wanting to create more of a provocation than it needs to be. there's a battle of wills between president obama and putin. >> that's right, jake. he doesn't view the situation with president putin as an international chess match but that appears to be what is taking place. so we've been asking jay carney all week, you may not see it this w

with russian foreign minister sergei lavrov by phone. kerry said lavrov assured him that moscow has no designs on ukraine. >> i made it clear that intervention would, in our judgement, be a very grave mistake. i nevertheless, made it clear that that could be misinterpreted at this moment and that there are enough tensions that it is important for everybody to be extremely careful not to inflame the situation and not to send the wrong messages. he reaffirmed to me that president putin is committed and that as a matter of policy, they do not intend to violate the sovereignty of ukrainement. >> and this afternoon the united nations security council met to discuss ukraine. >> meanwhile the deposed president of ukraine viktor yanukovych renewed his claim on that post today in his first public appearance since he fled kiev last friday. he called the pending may 25 elections illegitimate, and the interim ukrainian leadership bandits, speaking in the russian city of rostovondon, hard by the ukrainian border. >> ( translated ): i intend to continue to fight for the future of ukraine against those who
